The Binding Of Isaac Is Getting Its Own Card Game Thanks To Kickstarter Success

June 28th - via:
Yesterday saw the launch of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign from Edmund McMillen - one of the super-talented minds behind Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac - for a brand new card game based on the world of that latter top-down dungeon crawler - and it's already been completely funded. Using basic mechanics from the game, The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls has 2-4 players taking turns playing loot cards and using items to kill monsters that yield more items, loot, and sometimes souls. The first player to end their turn with four souls is the winner. According to the crowdfunding page, "cooperation, barter, and betrayal is encouraged". (Read More)

His secret? Community involvement. (Read More)
